The number of neutrophils, basophils, and platelets may be increased and some giant platelets may be present. Increased numbers of basophils are particularly important in diagnosis since they are not increased in any of the other causes of true or apparent polycythaemia.
3 Polycythaemia. Assessing Red Cells 31 increase in high-molecular-weight plasma proteins there is an effect on the electrical charge on the surface of the red cells and the cells sediment rapidly and form into stacks, like a pile of coins. These stacks are referred to as rouleaux (Fig. 4) and the ﬁlm is said to show increased rouleaux formation. The other abnormality of cell distribution is red cell agglutination. This is caused by an antibody against a red cell antigen. The antibodycoated red cells become sticky and form into irregularly shaped Fig.
